Check out all the great Mickey Mouse cookie jars inside!

Thanksgiving will be here soon, and we all know what happens the day after that! Lots of sleeping. Well that, plus lots of Christmas shopping. Ah the joys of fighting to get a parking spot, jabbing other customers and waiting in long lines.

No, that does not sounds fun, does it? Many now do all their Christmas shopping online, so I thought I would help out by posting some Disney gifts that are not quite the normal “princess doll” boring stuff.

So today I give you Mickey Mouse cookie jars! I remember my Mom’s Mickey Mouse cookie jar well. It’s big ears was perfect for my little hands to grab hold of while I was balancing on a chair and 10 books. 😀

The article below is for 2009. To read about Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas party for 2010, CLICK HERE and see what changes have been made for this year.

This year at Walt Disney World they have decked out the resort and theme parks early with their Christmas decorations and lights. Normally they put up all Christmas lights and trinkets the night after Thanksgiving. But this year Disney has transformed the resort into a Christmas winter wonderland already!

Because of that they are having more nights for their special Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, held at the Magic Kingdom theme park here in Orlando. This is a special Christmas party held between 7:00 PM to midnight nightly on selected nights.

Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party is an amazing display of Disney magic, with several shows, parades and special entertainment. For starters you can see all the Christmas lights and decorations throughout the Magic Kingdom park. Disney really knows how to transform the park into a spectacular, magical sight with fantastic Christmas lights and holiday displays.
